Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is just about as good as it gets in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also was awarded an A+ long-term care grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to be awarded more than one A+ category grades. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. This facility's vaccination records were a bit weaker than some of its other datapoints in this category, such as its nursing hours data. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 35.714287 percent of its residents. We'd love to see some improvement in this area next year. Fortunately, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a significantly better hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few components, most of which are based on nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Finally, this nursing home also excelled in several quality measures we looked at. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Pennsylvania in this category. This is usually an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by providing better nursing care and a system of moving patients at least once a day.

Historical

In the last area, this facility also was awarded a very strong short-term care rating, with an A-. This topped off a very favorable profile. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more meaningful for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was above average in this area with 54 percent of its patients returning home.
